{Giveaway} My Four Year #Blogoversary #Giveaway!

April 2, 2015 Giveaways 58

 I can hardly believe that it has been over 4 years since I started blogging. I decided to make my official blogoversary date April 2. I technically started blogging in February of 2011 but I didn’t really fully commit and start posting regularly until April 2.

I have come such a long way in the past 4 years. When I started back in 2011 I was in my first year of law school. Since then I have graduated, passed the bar exam and I am an attorney now. (That is still kind of crazy to me.) I found a job that I love, and my blog has been there with me every step of the way.

When I first started my blog, I had no idea about indie or self published authors, and in the past 4 years I have discovered some of my favorite authors were indies! I have made so many great friends in bloggers and authors, and I want to share some of it with you.

I never thought that anyone would read and follow my blog, let alone over 13,000 of you! The fact that I have that many followers continually blows my mind.

One of my favorite parts about blogging is finding new authors, and new blogs, so I am going to ask for recommendations from you guys! Please leave a comment with a new author and/or blog that I should check out! (or 5!)

Click to tweet

One of my favorite parts of blogging is discovering new authors and books and being able to share them with… Click To Tweet

i’m not going to bore you with facts and figures about my blog. I am just going to say this, my blog has been a labor of love. I have worked so hard on maintaining it and reading and providing the best honest reviews that I can. I am so proud of how far this blog has come. I love how many books and reviews I have shared with you guys and how many giveaways I was able to provide. I love each and every commenter, blogger, publisher and author that I have met through Book Briefs, and I can’t wait to meet so many more!

Thank you all!

—————————————

Ok now on to the giveaway! I have lots of books to giveaway from some of my favorite authors that I have found through my blogging journey.

  1. Lola

    Congrats on your four year blogoversary. Meeting new authors or bloggers is also one of my favourite part of blogging. For author I recommend SJ Pajonas as she’s one of my favourite authors and for blogs I would recommend Because Reading is Better Than Real Life, Fantasy is More Fun, Paper Fury or Herding Cats and Burning Soup, those are a few of my favourite blogs/ bloggers. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Candace

    Congratulations! 4 years is amazing! It’s crazy to think back and think of everything that has happened since then, right? I started my blog right before my son was born and now he’s in kindergarten. That’s crazy!
    Thanks so much for the amazing giveaway!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Thanks Candace! I know I can’t believe it has been 4 years already. It has gone by in the blink of an eye.

      I have seen so many blogs come and go in that time. I am super happy that you are celebrating here with me and that you are still around. I have always loved your blog 🙂

  3. Karina @ Watcha Reading

    Happy 4th blogoversary!! That’s crazy. My blog is barely going to turn 2 years old this year. I never thought I would have gotten this far either. You seem to be into a lot of indies. I used to be into them but now it’s so hard when I hear about new releases. I read them now and then but not as much as I used to.

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Hi Karina! 2 years is an accomplishment too! Congrats to you and your blog. And yea I read both indies and traditionally published books. One of my favorite things is to find a “hidden gem” indie and then share it with everyone and then evetually watch those authors blow up! 🙂 I love that traditional publishing houses are starting to do more indie and fan based imprints- like Atria and Swoon reads.

  4. Joy (Joyousreads)

    Wow. What an awesome giveaway! And happy anniversary!!! I can’t believe you managed to maintain studying law and blogging at the same time. That’s awesome. 🙂 Looking forward to reading your posts in the future!

  5. Rosy @ The Review Diaries

    HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY MICHELLE!!!
    4 years is amazing!! I just love your blog and I have been following it for almost as long as I have been blogging, pretty sure 2 years if not for sure close to that. Crazy that we have been blogging buddies for a few years already. 😀 Keep up the awesome work with the blog. I don’t know how you do it with being an attorney and book blogging full time too. (actually, we need to have a talk because I am trying to learn how to do everything and it’s SO SO Hard to want to read when I’m dead tired lol). ANYWAY congrats again and cheers to another 4 years haha!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Awh thank you! And I am so happy that we are bloggy friends. Feel free to email me anytime if you want to chat time management or really just anything 😉

      On that note, I do have a blogging event coming up in June called “blogging on a time crunch” where I’m going to talk about time management and blogging tools that have helped me so much. 🙂

  7. Paula M. @ Her Book Thoughts!

    HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!! Damn, it’s been 4 years already? So crazy. And yay for you being an attorney now. I totally remember when you were just a baby in your 1st year. lol

  12. Romi

    Congratulations on your blogversary! This is such a nice post. That’s what I love about commemorating when we first started blogging- the particular way us bloggers write our blogversary posts. It makes me really happy. I’ve only just come to your blog, so am very new, but I’m so excited for you to have done four years- here’s to many more!
    I’d recommend you try reading some Cornelia Funke (a really great fantasy author; her work is MG and younger YA, so brilliant- try Inkheart!) and Catherynne M. Valente (also a MG author, at least in the Fairyland series I read and devour and adore- she is brilliant and writes with intense beauty). Happy reading!xx
